These, bening aboute a hundred sowls,‡ came over in this first ship; and began this worke, which God of his goodnes hath hithertoo blesed; let his holy name have ye praise.

And seeing it hath pleased him to give me to see 30. years compleated since these beginings; and that the great works of his providence are to be observed, I have thought it not unworthy my paines to take a veiw of the decreasings & increasings of these persons, and such changs as hath pased over them & theirs, in this thirty years. It may be of some use to such as come after; but, however, I shall rest in my owne benefite.

*Who dyed 3. of Octob. 1655. [If this note is by Bradford, it is not written in his usual hand, and was penned subsequently to the text. Prince has the following manuscript note in his own copy of the Memorial, under this year: In the list at the e[nd] of Governor Bradford[s] MS. folio 't is writ that Captain Standish died October 3,

1655. But his son William's Table Book says October 3, 1656; and Captain Standish being chosen Assistant in 1656 shows that his death must [have taken place after 1655].” The part in brackets is trimmed off, and is supplied by conjecture. - ED.]
